What are roller shutters, and are you a candidate for them?

Blinds, awnings, plantation shutters. There are a lot of products to choose from when it comes to indoor and outdoor window fixings, and it can be confusing to determine which option is best suited to our home and lifestyle. You may want to ask yourself: which aesthetic am I going for? Do I have concerns around protection and security for my home? Which solution is going to be most suited to my budget?

We’re here to look specifically at roller shutters, which are aluminium slats filled with polyurethane. The slats are perforated allowing you to control light and airflow They are installed externally within a range of domestic or commercial settings. That is, for your home or business.

Roller shutters are the product of choice for many home and business owners because they promise a level of security which many other solutions on the market cannot. They protect against security threats, like break-ins, damage and vandalism as well as harsh environments, so are the perfect solution for those living in heavy rain and fire-prone areas. Energy efficiency and conservation are also major benefits of roller shutters because they provide thermal insulation that keeps your space cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and can prevent humidity which often leads to mould.

Roller shutters come in both manual and electric varieties depending on your preference and budget, and can also be fitted in a range of colours.

If security, protection and practicality are factors which you’re considering when making a decision on which window fixing will best suit your needs, then roller shutters may very well be the best option for you.

Roller Shutters Sydney


Many properties around Sydney and wider Sydney must meet Council DA approval requirements when building or renovating in bushfire prone areas.

Homeowners are often required to install BAL 40 rated bushfire security roller shutters to comply with BASIX.

Ital Shutters Pty Ltd source high quality CSIRO tested BAL 40 rated bushfire shutters for your project. If you choose to motorise your roller shutters, then a manual override system is a must. This will allow the roller shutters to be fully operational in the event of a power outage.

BAL stands for Bushfire Attack Level.

There are various BAL levels. They are:

BAL-LOW Lowest risk from a potential fire

BAL-12.5 Risk is primarily from potential embers during a fire

BAL-19 Moderate risk, particularly from embers and burning debris

BAL-29 High risk, particularly from embers, debris and heat

BAL-40 Very high risk. Likely to be impacted by embers, debris, heat and potentially flames

BAL-FZ Extreme risk. Directly exposed to the flames of a potential fire front
